Plans for several new housing blocks – the highest of which could be ten storeys – will be discussed by Brent Council at a meeting next week.

Its planning committee will assess proposals for more than 400 flats across three sites in the borough – in Kenton Road, Dudden Hill Lane, and Ealing Road – on Wednesday (January 13).

The scheme in Dudden Hill Lane seeks to replace several industrial sites with five housing blocks ranging from four to ten storeys.

Developers hope to provide 245 new homes alongside retail and workspace, as well as a new gym and nursery.

However, there are concerns around the design of the project and the impact it would have on neighbouring properties.

At present, 24 comments in objection have been lodged to the council, including a petition with 12 signatures, while 23 people have expressed support for the proposals.

Similar concerns have been raised about the scheme in Kenton Road, which seeks to provide 40 flats in a building up to four storeys high.

Objections were put forward around the density of the scheme and the impact it will have on traffic and air quality in the area due to a potential influx of cars.

Councillors Keith Perrin, Mary Daly, and Margaret McLennan have also submitted objections to the plans.

In Ealing Road, developers hope to build 132 new homes alongside commercial space on the site of a Currys PC World and Carphone Warehouse building.

However, just 14 per cent (19 units) of the proposed flats will be deemed affordable, while some people have described the height of the building – up to seven storeys – as “unacceptable”.

The meeting will be streamed on the council’s website at 6pm.
